Babylonstoren is one of the oldest Cape Dutch farms, dating back to 1692. It has a fruit and vegetable garden of beauty and diversity, unique accommodation, fine food and a sense of wellbeing. Our wines are produced in a state-of-the-art winery and are made to showcase the soils and climate where its grapes are grown. We have 88 hectares under vine and produce 13 different grape varieties with our highest vines – pinot noir and chardonnay – lying against Simonsberg at some 600 metres above sea level.
Our wines are best exemplified by the Babylonstoren logo, which consists of the pipe (representing the farmer), the flower (representing the garden) and the bird (representing nature). It is a combination of the very essence of Babylonstoren – keeping things simple and as true to the earth as possible. "It is this that we strive to achieve in our wine," says Charl Coetzee. "Truth to the area we are situated in on the slopes of Simonsberg, and simplicity by making elegant and balanced wines as natural as possible."

Lyme Bay Winery likes to do things a little differently. They’re one of very few UK wineries that work with growers rather than managing their own vineyards. The incredible sites chosen for the best quality fruit are located all over the country, so the LBW winemakers always have access to different grape varieties that grow better on different soils and in different microclimates. They pick the best of the best for all of their wines; still, sparkling and red. This means you always get the best wines from the best grapes from the best vineyards.

The Tiwari House winery is situated in the volcanic hills of Lake Balaton, Hungary. The old vines that grow around the winery take full advantage of the volcanic minerals in the basalt soils. The sun reflecting off the lake and the hills blocking the cold north and west winds create a unique climate that is humid, cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. On any typical summer and early autumn day, the vineyards are shrouded by fog until mid-morning allowing for balanced ripening of the grapes which protects the delicate fruit flavours. The quality viticulture, combined with the winemaking passion and skills of Tiwari House, produces outstanding, award winning, sparkling wines that have established the perfect relationship with the rhythm of nature. All our wines are vintage, 100% natural, vegan and use grapes grown organically.

Sourced straight from the limestone hills of Provence this new rosé wine is taking the UK market by storm and has already featured at regional events including The Goodwood Revival Festival 2021 and London’s Covent Garden Rosé Festival 2022.
